Today is #GivingTuesday - a global day of giving back - and it falls less
than a month before Chanukah when we kindle lights of hope.

In this spirit of hope for the future, please give back by supporting
JewishGen, whose mission is to "preserve our history for future
generations."

Because of JewishGen, and its more than 1,000 volunteers, people can learn
about their Jewish family history - no matter their location! With the
simple click of a button (and good internet access!), JewishGen allows
people to access information that previously would have required a
tremendous expense, and countless hours travelling the world.

In the words of one donor: "Sadly, the family members who might have
answered my many questions have all passed on. Therefore, it is only
through sites such as yours that I may find answers."

Our goal is to raise $18,000 *today* to help subsidize our services. A gift
of any amount will be greatly appreciated, and collectively, make a
tremendous difference. As in past years, gifts of $100 or more will
qualify for our Value Added Services.

FREE GIFT! All JewishGen users who contribute to our Giving Tuesday
campaign - no matter the amount - will receive an exclusive link to view
the upcoming film "My Dear Children" (which is scheduled to premiere
internationally in theaters and on PBS in 2018). This is the first-ever
documentary about the anti-Jewish massacres that swept what is today
Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus immediately following WWI. These massacres
are an often overlooked piece of Jewish history, and we hope you find
this film informative and meaningful. (A trailer can be viewed here:

JGS of Georgia - Meeting Sunday, Dec 3, 2017- A 25-year Grass Roots Effort to Access and Index Records for Lyakhovichi, Belarus #general

Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

The next meeting of the JGS of Georgia will feature Gary Palgon speaking
about the history of his research on the town of Lyakhovichi, Belarus
and how to use these techniques to research your own ancestral town.

Sunday, December 3, 2017
2:00 PM
at The Breman Museum
1440 Spring Street
Atlanta, Georgia

Admission is free to members.
Non-Members will pay for Museum admission.

Gary Palgon started tracing his family tree in 1980, but began the
journey of digging for records in Belarus in 1994. Beginning with a
visit and subsequently creating a Lyakhovichi Special Interest Group
(SIG) which helped to fund and access more than 40 data sources dating
back to 1784, he and other members accumulated more than 26,000 records,
documents, images and more. Gary will discuss his journey, how others
helped along the way, both in the United States and Belarus and give
tips on how to do the same for other places. Additionally, Gary will
share his expertise on related projects which included restoring,
cataloging and publishing an ancestral cemetery in Poland and his
success in publishing more than a dozen family tree books.

TAUB in Poland #general

Judith Goldsmith
 

Hello Genners!

I am searching for ancestors who might have immigrated to the USA and then
decided to leave for Palestine or another country. I cannot locate them in
the US databases except for a possible immigration record in 1920, listing
Roza Taub (mother) age 33, travelling with her 9 year- old son Kleimens to
join her husband Slowatskie Taub in New York. Both were born in Poland. My
ancestor's maiden name was Roza Perlmutter and she was born 1885 in Lancut,
Poland. Her parents were Meilech Perlmutter born 1857 in Lancut and Chewet
Geiger born 1858 in Blazowa, Poland. Roza was married to Schebsel Taub prior
to 1906, as they had a child, Joel, who died soon after birth in 1906 in
Drohobych. Roza and Schebsel Taub were living in Drohobych as recorded in
the 1910 Rzeszow Census. Roza had several siblings and her father who died
in the Holocaust. I did not find the Taubs among those listed in the Central
Database of Victims in Vad Vashem. II would greatly appreciate it if anyone
can help or point me in the right direction.

Thanking You,

Passenger Manifest of Joseph Wallach #ukraine

Marilyn Levinson
 

Dear fellow researchers
My grandfather Joseph or Jossel Wallach was born in Lipkani Bessarabia
Russia in 1890. Family history has it that he left c. 1912 to
escape military service. Joseph had two brothers Max and Moidel.
I found Max's passenger manifest which has him listed I think
under Nisen Boloch. He immigrated to the United States in 1913.
I know the name Wallach is often spelled Boloch, the last residence
is correct and the name of his father, Moishe is correct. The birth
date is about 2-5 years off depending on which subsequent record one
looks at.
I was told that only Max and Joseph immigrated to the United States.
I found a passenger manifest for a Mordel Wallach, who is
from Lipkan has a birthdate of 1890 and an arrival date of 1912.
He says he is going to join his brother Jossel Wallach.
At first I assumed that since Joseph was evading military service,
he used his brother's first name on his passenger
manifest but then saying he was joining a Jossel his own name seemed
strange to me.
I cannot find a passenger manifest
for a Joseph Wallach, or anything close to that name that has the
right dates or place of birth. I am wondering if I have reached
the wrong conclusion, and that unknown to my family Moidel did
immigrate, as well as Jossel and Max. I would appreciate your help.

Interesting Ancestral Discoveries #ukraine

David Goldman
 

Greetings, Jewishgenners.

I was finally able to actually obtain documents going back to the 1870s and
even to 1852 >from Zhitomir. One of the unusual findings was that my
great-great-grandfather (the rabbi of Mayaki near Odessa) had been married
in Zhitomir a first time at the age of 21 to a divorcee who was 26 in 1873.
I had previously obtained a record for his marriage to my
great-great-grandmother in Odessa in 1881. Of course no one in my family
ever heard about this, and it appeared extremely strange that a young 21
year old would marry an older divorced woman (who must have died or divorced
him by 1880).

Am I correct (ahem) in assuming that the only probably likelihood is as a
young religious Jew in 1873 he fell in love with a married woman who then
divorced her husband in order to marry him?

I realize this happens nowadays and could always happen, but it still seems
unusual, especially since the obvious first choice would have been a MATCH
made with a young virgin and not a divorcee who is about 5 years older than
him. They then had a child in Zhitomir in 1876, whose fate is unknown.

In addition, another record shows that his own father died of an "abscess"
or "ulcer" at age 55 in 1890 (meaning his father was 17 when he was born in
1852). What might we call this illness today in 2017?

Thanks,
David Goldman

Dear JewishGen Family,

Today is #GivingTuesday - a global day of giving back - and it falls less

In this spirit of hope for the future, please give back by supporting
JewishGen, whose mission is to "preserve our history for future

Because of JewishGen, and its more than 1,000 volunteers, people can learn
about their Jewish family history - no matter their location! With the
simple click of a button (and good internet access!), JewishGen allows
people to access information that previously would have required a
tremendous expense, and countless hours travelling the world.

In the words of one donor: "Sadly, the family members who might have

Our goal is to raise $18,000 *today* to help subsidize our services. A gift
of any amount will be greatly appreciated, and collectively, make a
tremendous difference. As in past years, gifts of $100 or more will
qualify for our Value Added Services.

FREE GIFT! All JewishGen users who contribute to our Giving Tuesday
campaign - no matter the amount - will receive an exclusive link to view
the upcoming film "My Dear Children" (which is scheduled to premiere
internationally in theaters and on PBS in 2018). This is the first-ever
documentary about the anti-Jewish massacres that swept what is today
Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus immediately following WWI. These massacres
are an often overlooked piece of Jewish history, and we hope you find
this film informative and meaningful. (A trailer can be viewed here:

Dear JewishGen Family,

Today is #GivingTuesday - a global day of giving back - and it falls less
than a month before Chanukah when we kindle lights of hope.

In this spirit of hope for the future, please give back by supporting
JewishGen, whose mission is to "preserve our history for future
generations."

Because of JewishGen, and its more than 1,000 volunteers, people can learn
about their Jewish family history - no matter their location! With the
simple click of a button (and good internet access!), JewishGen allows
people to access information that previously would have required a
tremendous expense, and countless hours travelling the world.

In the words of one donor: "Sadly, the family members who might have
answered my many questions have all passed on. Therefore, it is only
through sites such as yours that I may find answers."

Our goal is to raise $18,000 *today* to help subsidize our services. A gift
of any amount will be greatly appreciated, and collectively, make a
